By: Stephen Brooks Mon, 19 Nov 2012 17:09:35 +0000 I think the evolution goes something like:

1. You have no overarching plan at all;
2. You start fitting things into a plan and become a hedgehog;
3. You recognise the limits of a single plan and become a fox;
4. You realise hedgehog and fox are just different modalities that you have to switch between, splitting and combining views of the world as necessary.
